Ed Sanders' Keynote Lecture on Youtube

Ed Sanders at the University of Basel

1960s countercultural figure Ed Sanders lectured on the ups and downs of Hippie. The keynote lecture—a combined reading, recitation, singing, exorcism, and analysis of key events of those times—can now be watched on Youtube.

The activist, poet, historian, and musician Ed Sanders graced the conference with a beautiful keynote lecture recalling the turbulent times of the late 1960s: from the war in Vietnam to Abbie Hoffman, from the Human Be-In to the Altamont Speedway Concert. This very personal and touching account of the events and values of the era is as timely as ever.

The lecture is now online on Youtube.
